What’s the point of the Bulls drafting players if they aren’t going to play?


I know. I am sounding like a broken record. Every year, I make this argument of what the point being, in the Bulls drafting players. When it’s all said and done, it doesn’t matter. Why? Because there is an idiot, who impersonates a head coach, that is at the helm of this team.

In any sport, when a team drafts players (especially ones that are high in the rounds), they usually picked to contribute right away. If not, then there is really no point in doing it. With the NFL, teams get players that are ready to go. When it comes to the NBA, first round picks are suppose to be ready to go and if not, they are usually the ones that play overseas and they wait for cap purposes. Fine with me.

When it comes to the Bulls, neither of those options apply. It’s either stay overseas and do nothing with the pick (Nikola Mirotic) or, draft players and have them sit on the bench until they are traded or released (Marquis Teague, Erik Murphy).

Let’s take a look at all of the draft picks since ThomASS came into the fold, shall we?

2010: Kevin Seraphin (Traded), Jerome Jordan (Traded)

2011: Norris Cole (Traded to the Heat), Jimmy Butler, Malcom Lee (Who?), Nikola Mirotic (Still playing in Spain)

2012: Marquis Teague (Never played – Traded)

2013: Tony Snell (Barely plays), Erik Murphy (Never played – Released)

Now, here we are with 2014. The three geniuses known as Gar Forman, John Paxson and Tom Thibodeau, decided to trade their two draft picks to the Nuggets in exchange for Doug McDermott, current player Anthony Randolph and a future second-round pick. Before I get to McDermott, let me preface by saying that Randolph will cost the Bulls $1.8 million and there is a rule with this type of trade that says the Bulls can’t trade him for 60 days.

With McDermott, I like him as a player. I think he’s a solid shooter and one who could have played in a bigger conference. That doesn’t matter anymore. And not because he’s in the NBA now. But because ThomASS is still here and he will only get on the court during warmups. You can count on the only draft pick above that has actually played to get all of the time in the court. Jimmy Butler will, once again, be on the court for 45 minutes a game. The “experts” will continue to talk about how he needs to play better despite these “experts” not having any clue that the reason he isn’t as good as he should be is because he never gets time to rest. As always with the Bulls, when the playoffs roll around, their legs will be Jello.

So, go ahead. Agree or disagree. I’ve been right all of these years. With Rose’s two bad knees, Noah’s two bad feet and Butler’s Jello legs, the window for this team (whether Carmelo arrives or not), is closing very quickly. So what’s the solution to keep the window open for another year or two?

Fire Tom Thibodeau and replace him with someone who has half of a consciousness.

    Agreed. I’ve been thinking, why would Carmelo Anthony even think about coming here? Thibodeau will kill him by playing him to death before the All Star game.

  2. Fro Dog Says:

    I forgot to add that the Bulls also drafted Cameron Bairstow, who played with Tony Snell at New Mexico. So, like Snell, he won’t see the court and like last year’s second round pick in Erik Murphy, he will probably be released during the season. PATHETIC.

  3. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    I think its smart to draft someone for Tony to talk to on the bench… It builds good team chemistry..

    Dougie McBuckets WILL see the court!

  4. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Steak Dinner, Boom! Will be Tuesday..

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Heh. I wonder if they are going to send Benny The Bull to greet Carmelo at O’Hare like they did with Tracy McGrady years ago.

    And sad news for yours truly. Elena Delle Donne, who is known around here as the future Mrs. Fro Dog, is going to be out for a while with Lyme Disease. The Sky are 3-7 in their last ten games and she only played in one of them. For her, it’s a chronic condition as she had it on occasion in college. That makes me a very sad man.

    I’ve got something I want to say, something that some people might not agree with, but you guys know me. When has that ever stopped me? Here goes:

    Fuck Derrick Rose.

    I’m so fucking sick and tired of this lazy piece of shit that I want to gouge my fucking eyes out. You stupid, ignorant, pompous asshole, who in the name of fuck do you think you are saying you won’t “recruit” another player to the team that you “play” for? Here’s a fucking idea; How about you do SOMETHING to justify your enormously overpaid, overhyped ass. Oh, that’s right. It’s not your job. Well, what exactly IS your job you whiney, sniveling little BITCH? I understand that basically you have a pretty much ironclad contract. Well, my hope is that when that contract expires that you try testing the free agent market. And it’s my sincerest hope that NOT ONE FUCKING GODDAMN TEAM IN THE NBA CALLS YOUR USELESS, PATHETIC ASS. That way you can fucking die on the vine, and wonder why nobody wants you to play for them. As far as I’m concerned Rose, you can fucking starve for all I care. You’re nothing but a useless goddamned fucking lazy cocksucker who doesn’t give a fuck about winning a title. So….FUCK YOU DERRICK FUCKING ROSE.

  7. Fro Dog Says:

    I admit, I was supportive of him for the last few years during this shitty injury. And as you know, I blame the idiot who is the head coach of this team for that. I was fine with him taking the year off. He gets hurt again. It wasn’t so much him getting hurt this time around that frustrated me. It was more, him saying he was 100% and now, he says he isn’t sure about even practicing with Team USA in the next month or two.

    Here’s another problem to look at, why is his brother and the rest of his “camp” involved in all of this? Isn’t Rose an adult? The guy lives in a really nice condo in the Trump Tower which is where Jonathon Toews lives as well. So, it would appear he is on his own with his lady friend and child. Why can’t this guy get off his brother’s nipple then? Every time I see Reggie Rose sitting courtside at a game, it frustrates me even more. Fuck this guy and the rest of his posse.

    Bravo Chucky. Good to see that you are as ANGRY! as you ever have been. Although DVX is still ahead of you with what’s going on in the sport that shall not be discussed on here.

    And DVX, big day tomorrow. It looks like Altidore is playing tomorrow.

    Time for Team USA to show the FIRE AND PASSION!

  8. chucky Says:

    Fro….Rose is NOT an adult. He’s a fucking little punk ass bitch who is renting an adult body.

    Thanks for the kudos man. Yeah, I’m still pissed. Why the hell not? DVX may be ahead in points, but hell, that’s OK. I’m in good company with him, wouldn’t you say? I can sure live with that!

    Speak of the devil…

    First off chucky and Fro, let me just say “dittos” to you on Derrick Rose. I’m pretty much one more waffling statement from him about “not being quite ready to play this year” to just give up on the Bulls for 2014-15. If Derrick’s not about helping get players who might help him get to the NBA Finals (and like, maybe winning four out of seven), then fuck his stingy brittle ass.

    Fro, you make a good point about Derrick Rose’s “entourage.” Maybe it’s just me, but is he NOT a grown man? One of the uglier stereotypes about professional athlete is the one about the dude with his “bros” always around, tossing around BS professional advice while sucking of his tits (wwww, ugly image there). If Rose is operating under advice from his crew…fuck ’em.

    In free agency, I would rather have Love than Melo, based on their respective histories. Is Melo willing to buy into trying to play defense, or even acknowledging that basketball is a team sport, and that he’s not a Rucker Park anymore? The only reason I see him signing is he knows he’ll be on the floor 35-40 minutes a night to basically run and shoot at will, and maybe gamble on a steal on defense every now and then. I say Kevin Love and one more underrated scoring option from the FA market.

    As for Team Yankee, I’m hoping that this is the game where they truly STEPDAFUCKUP!!! To be honest, many of the Powers That Be have underwhelmed. I keep wanting to see Brazil or Holland or somebody put on a masterclass, but I’m not really seeing it so far. Not getting off work tip 5:00, so I hope the boys are still in it at that point.

    When does Bears training camp start?

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    Our friend, Pie In The Sky, mentioned this last week, but what is with National teams pissing themselves late in games? To my memory, it started with the 2010 Men’s Hockey team in the Olympics. That continued to 2014. The Women’s Hockey team did the same thing this year. Now, the U.S. Soccer team did it twice in just over a week by losing giving up the tying goal late to Portugal and two goals in extra time in Belgium.

    Somewhere on the East Coast, DVX is causing chaos in ANGER! Chucky, you have been replaced.

    Training camp for the Bears begins July 24th.

  11. dvxprime Says:

    I’m not really going bats hit over this game, but dammit that hurt like hell. The keeper Tim Howard stood tall as long as he could tonight. The Yanks missed an excellent game-winner near the end of regulation, came apart in the first OT period, pulled one back in the second OT, but couldn’t get the goal they needed to tie.

    That being said, this was arguably the best game played of the whole round of 16. The traditional powers (Argentina, Brazil, Germany) all played below their punching weight and could have easily been sent home. Team Yankee put on a good show with Belgium, but it was a very good game of coulda/woulda/shoulda.

    Not really raging angry, but this could have been so much more.

    Now it’s two more months of shit baseball, Derrick Rose being a little bitch, and waiting on the Bears…oh, and hoping that the Fire and Passion can get jot in gear this season.


  12. genrebuster Says:

    “two more months of shit baseball”…..yep. PATHETIC.

  13. dvxprime Says:

    The Cubs went to Boston and swept the Red Sox? And scored 16 runs last night? Well, shit…

    Think you boys can do some more of that until the Bears’ regular season opener?

  14. dvxprime Says:

    Fro, looking at the Bulls’ recent draft history, they have to be one of the worst drafting teams in NBA history. Even during the Jordan years the Bulls couldn’t draft to save their collective immortal souls. Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose have been the only players that have become draft successes for the Bulls. And we traded Norris Cole so he could end up with two rings in his first three seasons with Miami? Dafuckizthis?

    This basketball season is looking uglier than ever. No one knows if Derrick is gonna play, God alone knows if we’re going to get anybody worth a damn in the FA market, and it looks like another year of Thibodeau running a seven-to-eight man rotation through 82 games…with a roster that is another year older and more susceptible to injury.

    Now I REALLY wish Team Yankee would have won that game…it gave me something else to focus on besides the barren wasteland of Chicago sports…dammit.

  15. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    Adios Carlos! It will be nice to watch a Bulls game and not hear his loud fucking mouth in the first 3 periods.

  16. genrebuster Says:

    DVX….”this could be the year!” (the sheeple are happy baaaaaaahhhh baaaaaaaaaahhh)
